Sick pay during Covid-19
If you are showing symptoms of COVID-19, you should not go to work under any circumstances. You should self-isolate and get a test as soon as possible. COVID-19 symptoms are explained on the HSE website.
If you are sick with COVID-19, you may be entitled to sick pay from your employer. This depends on your contract of employment. Your employer does not have to pay you when you cannot come to work because you are sick with COVID-19, unless it is part of your contract of employment.
If your employer does not pay you, you should apply for COVID-19 enhanced Illness Benefit from the Department of Social Protection.
